What: CLC Board elections, Bylaw and Platform proposals, etc
Who: All members are invited to attend and voting members can vote (see requirements below)
Since the beginning of the CLC in 2022, we’ve had fantastic growth and support from the liberty community, we’ve endorsed candidates, been joined by a fantastic board of advisors, and built a compassionate community of libertarians. With time comes challenges, and it is more important than ever to bring up leaders to provide a vision for the LP.
At the 2023 General Meeting, there will be 3 seats on our board open for election: Vice-Chair, Treasurer, and At-Large Member. If you are interested in seeking one of these positions, don’t hesitate to reach out to our secretary by email, or in the 2023 General Meeting channel in our discord. The only requirement for running for the board is that you are a voting member of the CLC in good standing. For full responsibilities of a board member, please see section 5 of our bylaws.
A member is anyone who has signed up on our website, signing both the NAP pledge and support for our purpose and values. Voting members are members who have donated $10 a month for at least 3 months, or $120 over the past year. The donation requirements can be waived by the board. Please email the secretary to request a waiver, particularly if you are a CLC volunteer. These members will select the new board members and changes to the bylaws and platform. If you would like to participate in the discussion around proposed changes, make sure to join the discord!
This next year will bring a lot of challenges for the Libertarian Party, we will be looking to provide a positive direction for it to go in. And with the 2024 Presidential election right around the corner, it is imperative we work to have a principled libertarian who can speak for our values at the top of the ticket. The CLC needs your support to make that happen. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the General Meeting, and working with the new members of the board!
– Jonathan Casey, Chair
